Leroy Hampton Smith b1814 SC; not Col. Issac Smith's son

Hi there,

I am researching my Smith line, but hit a wall. Leroy Hampton Smith is not a son of Col. Isaac Smith. I even contacted the Kennedy Room of the Spartanburg Library and they double checked to ensure there has never been a son of Col. Issac Smith named Leroy. All the sons mentioned for in his obituary are accounted for.

For now I know he was born about 1814 in SC. Migrated to Cherokee areas of Alabama. Signed up for Malone's Calvary (9th Alabama). Had a son Benjamin Harrison Smith who went west to Texas to start my clan.

I hate this because Leroy, for now is a dead end. If you happen to find anything new, please let me know and I'll do likewise.

Dave
